OOT Bags This or that?

Recommended Posts

I was waffling too and ultimately decided yes to OOT bags and so far it's been one of my most fun projects to do. I ordered 50 canvas tote bags from VistaPrint. These will be printed with the logo I designed below on them. Found a great coupon on retailmenot.com and got 50% off and free shipping on these. Yay! Then I will be filling them with: - welcome letter to guests - postcards I created on Zazzle.com and a pen - plastic tumblers with straws from discountmugs.com - Oh Sh*t Kit: (shout wipes, emergen-c, advil, pepto, alka-seltzer, band-aids, aloe, hand sanitizer, chap stick, tissues, altoids) - customized matches with our names/wedding date (this is so guests can light their wish lanterns on the beach after the wedding) - a little bag that will have graham crackers, a marshmallow and chocolate so guests can make s'mores at the bonfire the first night, which is when I'll be giving the bags out. logo for tote bag: 700
CUTE LOGO!

Super easy! I just made it in MS Word. I first Googled free fonts and found one I liked, then downloaded it. This one is called Dreamland and for some reason it looked Jamaican to me. :) I also Googled images of purple palm trees, found that one, and just added it to a blank word doc then typed Jamaica below in my new font and wedding colors.

we did one per couple (for the couples), and then one per person if they were singles traveling together.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
